Putting the Power in Your Tweets

5

Twitter and the social vending machine craze are just heating up together. While Twitter may be just one of the many forms of social media that people love to use, as well as keep up with, this type of machine is just beginning to catch on for the most significant events with the most prominent backers. These are events where you already want to be, and where you’re probably already going to be sending up a tweet to let the world know you were here.

What’s really fun about these machines that work along with social media is that they are ridiculously simple to use, and they allow you to get a little bit of an extra reward for tweeting when you’re probably already going to anyway. Of course, there are some things you need to know about the social media vending machine and how it operates as this relates to you.

Being Where You Are

It’s interesting that in the modern world, a lot of times, people act as if they aren’t physically where they are, just because they aren’t there mentally. When you take the phones out of people’s hands, it looks like they are staring into the distance in some kind of a trance. The Walking Dead is a common metaphor for how some people are so engrossed in their devices that they have to be extra careful to not run into things when they are walking. In a sense, mindfulness has fallen by the wayside.

But then, devices don’t have to separate people from each other. In some ways, your device can actually help you to bridge the gap between yourself and people you might not initially feel comfortable talking to. The art of cold approaching strangers is one that has largely fallen by the wayside, but social vending machines are a way that this can reverse itself to a point.

Being Social in the Real Sense

When you’re in a space where a major event is going on, it’s essential to let the world know you’re there. At the same time, it’s also crucial to get as much as you can out of the event. This means you can show it off, including some swag. These machines allow you to simply tweet about the event, and in some cases, get a discount on renting or owning something branded. This lets the world know what tribe you’re a part of.

The vending machines let the company know you’re someone who supports them. The swag lets people know that you support a given part of the event. This can begin to bridge the gaps between people in a way that just walking up to a random person or group could never do. The gaps form partially because of social norms, and partly because of devices. With the devices being a part of forging some new social norms, this changes the entire game for you.

Twitter is more personal than anything thing I’ve ever used online. It allows me to converse with like minded people and to even meet them in person. Amazing post Ladonna.

Hello Ladonna,

One of social media’s real strengths is to connect global tribes who are passionate about their interests.

It could be photography, gaming or gummy bears. When most people jump into social media marketing and Twitter marketing, the first thing that many are focused on is their follower count.
Thanks for sharing
